Spring Lobby & Egg hunt

What is a seasonal update without a seasonal lobby! Our Spring lobby is back, and more colourful than ever! Explorer the fields of eggs and flowers and maybe play hide & seek! But what is a Spring lobby without an awesome Egg Hunt? For Spring 2020, we've added back our well known Egg Hunt. For our Java network, there are 25 precious eggs scattered around our Spring lobby, if you find them all, you'll win some points, experience, 2 Spring Cubelets and a Pink Rabbit Banner to wear on your head!

For our Bedrock network, we've hidden 15 beautiful eggs around our lobby, and if you find them all, you'll win an epic Chocolate Bunny Win Effect and an "Egg Hunt 2020" username prefix!

Bedrock Server Catchup

Previously we've done updates like this totally silently, however, we now want to share with you what we are up to so I hope you enjoy the details!

Also, we hit 19,000 concurrent on Bedrock today (smashing our player record on that platform)! Whoop! Thank you, everyone, for playing <3

Hi everyone,

Over the past few days, we have seen significantly increased numbers of players across our network. Over the weekend we consistently peaked at over 22,000 players across both our Bedrock and Java platforms.

We understand many of you are now out of school, isolating, or otherwise stuck at home. We have been working over the weekend and alongside our suppliers in order to increase capacity as quickly as we can to ensure that you all can continue to play during these unprecedented times.

For those who are interested we are:
  • Increasing the number of nodes in our database cluster to help handle the increased load from both the players and Skyblock
  • Increasing the number of frontends to support more concurrent connections across Bedrock and Java
  • Increasing the size of our game server pool. We have actually used up all the available stock from our provider so are working with them to replenish the stock or to switch the model of server we use.
As a temporary measure, we are increasing the party limits across all ranks by 2 on the Java network and by 1 on the Bedrock network.

Some more stats:
  • Our egressing bandwidth has doubled to 7Gbps - that’s 1,400 HD Netflix streams at once!
  • We can now support another 1,500 games running after getting a load more dedicated servers.
  • We've added a total of 4TB of RAM so far!

It really isn't our position to advise on anything related to Coronavirus and COVID-19 however the following organisations have provided resources for members of the public which we would like to draw your attention to:
